"You Know How Easy It Is"

Of nonfictional prose-

Of poetry:

What's already learned-

The fantasy,
Within the chronological outline-

That you have no reason
To see turned:

And what's on your mind?

And did you forget again
To send your girl a rose?

But you know how easy it is
To comment upon the tendencies of the age:

And somewhat Shakespearean,
If you speak of your life
As your time upon the stage:

The things you have included-

And whether or not
You've been deluded?

Sometimes- that's just the way it is.
